Went there with a great buddy of mine (aspitides) and sampled most of the beers that were on tap. Excellent atmosphere (very friendly, sociable people), good food (although I admit I didnít have anything too extravagant) and EXCELLENT selection of beer/liquor and really excellent service with friendly people all the way around. I will definitely be returning for all they have to offer.

Wow! No more Valley Brewing Company. When Steve left to start High Water Brewing everything worth going for left. I have fond memories of this place. Now itís just a shell. A facade of a Brewery.

Bar with lots of open space and probably 15 feet or so to the ceiling. They had 3 housetaps and a few others like Sierra Nevada. When I asked for samples I got the three house taps for free, so value for money cant get any better.

Stopped by while in Stockton. Sampled 7 brews for 7 bucks. The pours were about 5 oz. Not a bad deal. Unfortunately Uberhoppy was not on tap.

Large bar/restaurant facility with a good sized patio and banquet room that seats more than 100. The ambiance is one of a sports bar with lots of signed jerseys displayed and about a dozen TVs througout the restaurant. Valley prides itself on its use of Belgian yeast to make Belgian style versions of American beers. The beers are good and a sampler is worth trying. I thought the India Red Ale, Stout, and Bourbon Barrel Barleywine were the best. I went on a slow, rainy day and the place was pretty empty. The service that day was disappointingly slow and the staff not very knowledgable about Valleyís beers. Decent food menu selection including appetizers, pizzas, salads, sandwiches, and burgers but food was pretty average. Thereís entertainment on certain nights. Overall I like the place and woudl definitely go again.

Stopped by on my way to my parents house. Fairly nice atmosphere for a brewpub. Decent selection of Valley Beerís, like Uberhoppy, no guest beers from what I saw. Service wasnít great, bar tender didnít know much about the beer. Average pricing.

Great beer. Definitely the best brewery in the Central Valley. I hope they find someone as skilled and passionate as Steve to continue what he has done, or it will decline until they sell to a chain or it goes under just as the rest of Stockton has done. As far as the restaurant goes, it is very accommodating for groups. No problem with a "party of five" or fourteen. The food is very good bar food. The service is often sub-par, mediocre at best. Nice girls, but get a notepad and write down the orders.

Stopped in here for a sampler on 8/7/10. Had a moral dilemma here considering the way they shafted their head brewer recently, but this spot was on the itinerary for months before the trip happened and I figured maybe weíd get to try some of the last beers he brewed. Decent looking bar and restaurant. Didnít try the food. Service was okay. Beers were overall pretty good, with IPA, Uberhoppy and Black Cat Stout as the standouts. Worth the trip.

This location is a run of the mill sports bar, loads of sports paraphelia, Wayne Gretzky posters, large screen TVs. Service was fast and friendly. The beer was OK, run of the mill selection, so I was dissapointed not having access to the highly rated one offs. Next time, Iíll go to the brewery.

Great venue. Great service. Damn good beers. Damn good burger with damn good yam fries and a hot dip. Got to talk to the owner for quite awhile. The whole place just reeks of enjoyment.

Nice old brick building, very friendly staff. Food was excellent; I had the Blu and Black burger with yam fries. I had never had any except one of the standard Valley brews so I tried a sampler. All solid brews except maybe the mild. I really enjoyed my stay and especially the UberHoppy bottles I got to go!
